The value of women has come to be equated with their roles in the workplace. Little attention is paid to the kinds of accomplishment that the Word of God says women should aspire to (1 Timothy 5:10, 1 Timothy 2:11-13, Titus 2:3-5, Proverbs 31:10-31).
If you look around, no bouquets are handed out to women for being reverent and temperate, modest and chaste, gentle and quiet. Women are hardly ever applauded or noticed for loving their husbands and children, for keeping a well-ordered home, for providing hospitality, for going out door to door teaching and telling people about our soon coming Savior Jesus Christ and for carrying out acts of kindness.
I am saddened by the fact that, the roles of women in the home as daughters, sisters, wives and mothers are minimized, all in the name of 'bringing them greater fulfillment and freedom.' Women are no longer being regarded as bearers and nurturers of life, as caregivers, as those privileged to shape the character of the next generation.
It should come as no surprise that the secular world is confused about the calling of women. What I find more heart-BREAKING! is the rate to which the modern feminist movement is creeping into the Church.
